All cases are unique and circumstances can change depending on the specific situation and or facts in a case. Some of the most important rights you have are those guaranteed to you under the 4th amendment of the Constitution. These rights can often be violated by law enforcement agents and agencies while they are conducting a search. The 4th Amendment protects all citizens from illegal search and seizure. Because of this constitutional right, certain methods of obtaining evidence are deemed unlawful. All citizens have the right to privacy and a law enforcement agent like a police officer cannot simply stop and search for an illegal substance without probable cause. A case can be dropped if these rights have been violated and an experienced criminal defense attorney can search for evidence to prove that you were searched illegally.
Lastly, an attorney can make an argument that a person was unknowingly transporting substances without knowledge. Individuals can be tricked into transporting drugs and end up being prosecuted for a crime they did not know they were committing. With proper representation and facts in the case, a criminal defense attorney may provide a favorable outcome in your case.
